Join Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania (GSHPA) as we gear up for another month full of programs for Girl Scouts of all ages! Visit our event calendar to view the full list of GSHPA programs offered.
In February we celebrate World Thinking Day, and this year’s theme is Our World, Our Equal Future. Explore with us as we learn about climate change and gender equality, discover female changemakers and how we can follow in their footsteps, and learn how we can change the world through fun videos, trivia, and activities.
Registration is open for all February events–we hope to see you there!
Can you believe it is already the middle of December Girl Scouts? This year has flown by and we have had some incredible programs and events. Since October 1st we have had more than 53 programs with our Program and Outdoor team, and it has been so exciting to be able to add in-person events to that lineup! As we end 2021 and look to welcome in the New Year we have even more programs to share with you coming up in 2022.
The first event of the year is actually an ongoing one. 2022 will be spent celebrating the 110th anniversary of Girl Scouts!
Juliette Gordon Lowe began Girl Scouts with just 18 girls in 1912, and we have grown to 2.5 MILLION Girl Scouts today, and that is just in the USA! Keep an eye out for some exciting events to celebrate throughout next year on our event calendar.
To kickoff this celebratory year, we have a jam packed schedule coming up in January. We are so excited to host another Virtual Volunteer Conference on January 15th. This is open to all volunteers, and registration is live. This year we have many more sessions to enjoy and you will have access to ALL the recorded sessions afterwards. In addition to a swag bag for conference participants, you will receive an exclusive code to use at the GSHPA Retail shop!
Girls can dive into the New Year by joining us for a number of great programs. Check out the exciting opportunities below:
January brings both in person and virtual badge opportunities, including Cookie Entrepreneur badges and Outdoor Experience badges. Take a look at all we are offering and register on our event calendar.
